- What does entrepreneurship mean to you?
Entrepreneurship is being able to utilize resources to create opportunities with an aim of having a positive impact on your target audience.
- What does community mean to you?
Community refers to a space where one can grow through human interaction.
- Why did you join PAYE?
I joined PAYE solely because I believe in its vision of creating a network of African Entrepreneurs across the continent who are seeking to create opportunities within their communities.
- What is your motto in life?
Good investing isn’t necessarily about earning the highest returns, because the highest returns tend to be one-off hits that can’t be repeated. It’s about earning pretty good returns that you can stick with and which can be repeated for the longest time. That’s when compounding runs wild.
- Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?
Definitely back in the African continent, creating robotic systems in the Real Estate sector and Agricultural sector too.
